Cruis­ing the canals

Mansarda Res­tau­rant (above), lo­cated on the 6th floor of Qu­a­tra Corti busi­ness cen­tre, of­fers amaz­ing views of St Peters­burg lit-up at night. The food is fab­u­lous — in­clud­ing black caviar with po­tato pan­cake — but just as good is the peo­ple watch­ing; this is glam­orous Rus­sia on a night out. spb/res­tau­rant/mansarda It was the warm­est Septem­ber in 80 years (8°C as op­posed to 0°C), so we took a boat trip on St Peters­burg’s canals, which have been de­scribed as ‘Vene­tian’. We passed the Sum­mer Gar­den, the Mu­seum to the Oc­to­ber Rev­o­lu­tion, and nu­mer­ous Im­pe­rial palaces. Sight­see­ing boats de­part reg­u­larly.
